Wide-body kit for the VW Touareg by JE Design

German tuner provides a wide-body kit as well as suspension lowering, power boosting and new wheels for the whole Touareg range, including the R-Line.

German tuner JE Design has a new wide-body kit for the VW Touareg range, including the R-Line.

For the body kit JE Design fits a new sport grille, front spoiler, front and rear widening wheel arches, a rear apron insert and a tailgate panel that provides a distinct style to the Touareg.

The tuner offers power boosting too on the Touareg range including on the 4.2 liter TDI. By means of an ECU remap output is boosted from the series 340 PS (250 kW / 335 hp) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque to 410 PS (302 kW / 404 hp) and 930 Nm (686 lb-ft) on the large diesel unit.

That extra power is good for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint time of 5.4 seconds on the hefty Touareg (instead of the standard 5.8 seconds) while top speed rises from 242 km/h (150 mph) to 269 km/h (167 mph).

JE Design offers its own SUV-Select 10 x 22-inch rims wrapped in ultra high-performance tires sized 295/30R22. A wheel spacer kit (30 millimetres in front, 40 millimetres in the rear) is also fitted to make sure the wheels look at home in the new arches.

A suspension-lowering module brings the SUV 35 mm closer to the ground while a dual-exhaust system with stainless steel oval pipes is part of package too.

For the interior is a full Alcantara finish for the dashboard, door panels and the roof liner.
